The room was very clean. The decor was also modern and updated. We had a room with a private bathroom, and it was clean and good-sized. The shower was rather spacious. The only downside is that the above ground subway was very audible from the room, so it is definitely important to bring earplugs and even then it was hard to sleep through rush hour in the morning.
The common room in the basement is great. The kitchen has been updated and there's more than enough dishware/fridge space/cooking utensils available for everyone. There is also a great large, dining room table with a TV, ping pong tables and a lounge area. The fact that this room is in the basement means that the noise in the common room is not audible in the bedrooms.
There is a grocery store about 10 minutes away by bus, and a small convenience store across the street for any emergencies. The subway is right next to the hostel and it is a direct line to downtown Manhattan. The location is therefore great - and the costs are much cheaper than in Manhattan!
